Karl Schaeffer of Carlsbad: A Tragedy in San Diego

Hello, Pumpkinistas!

Karl Schaeffer, a veteran grower, and definite enthusiast, was kind enough to send along these photos of his shortened 2007 season. It appears the hot weather did in his great orange hope early on. I can relate...

The weather's been very toasty so keep an eye on your vine and your soil moist! We are closing on the end of the season, and it would be another tragedy to lose a contender with the last weeks closing in on a challenging 2007 season!
